Imogen Hartland

Imogen is a data analyst by day, and an aspiring picture book writer by night. She likes words that sound like ice-skating manoeuvres (like rickety, tarantula and highlight) and giant palettes of little things (like the zipper section in a haberdashery store, or a display of macarons—yum!). She lives in Dharawal country in Sydney near some rock pools and the bush, and you can find her on Instagram @i.hearts.arts.and.crafts.

Poems by Imogen include:
